According to the sellers listing, 250 copies of the promo were pressed and distributed by Parlophone (in 1962) before the misspelling was corrected.

The records scarcity, early date, misspelling, and stated condition (as excellent) by the seller, all appear to have contributed to the high selling price.

The misspelling to look for is... Paul McCartney's name is misspelled as 'McArtney' on both sides of the record. A small detail that might escape the attention of a casual observer, if they weren't looking for it.
